On Wednesday Saint-Etienne played at home versus Marseille in a postponed derby of round 17. The away team scored first, but The Greens turned the game and won with 2-1. Saint-Etienne are on a run of four consecutive wins before the match with Lyon. Both teams are neighbours in the standings – Saint-Etienne are third with 36 points, while Lyon are fourth with two points less.
Lyon are playing amazingly in Europe, but the same cannot be said for their performance in France. Recently, The Kids were knocked out from League Cup, which was one of their two chances for a trophy this season. Lyon allowed too many mistakes in the league and had won just nine in overall 20 games so far. They have won only against Monaco in the previous six fixtures, but don’t have a defeat as guests since the beginning of October. In the middle of the week, Lyon took a point in the away match against Toulouse after they were two goals behind.
Saint-Etienne is in better form, and advantage will be the home factor. Surprisingly for us, the bookmakers consider Lyon to be the favourites in this match. The Greens are performing amazingly at home and have won 26 from possible 30 points, while the guests have won just 13 points in their away games. We expect a game with many goals, and we will trust the good attack of Saint-Etienne and the weak performance of the defence of Lyon.
I will back Saint-Etienne – Over 1.5 Goals, with Saint-Etienne 2-1 Correct Score. We recommend placing this bet in MansionBet, where you can take advantage of a $50 Welcome Bonus and regular promotions for loyal customers.
